Fishing with Chum Fun Charters 

Tours are 3.5 hours long and include rain gear and fishing gear. They can sell you a fishing license too and the cost is amazingly affordable.  This is an opportunity for people aged 7 and older to fish Alaska. The exploration portion of the tour begins at the local marine aquarium where you can get up close to some of Alaska's best marine creatures including a touch tank appropriate for kids and adults. From there you head to the docks, which is a short walk and you fish the mouth of the river, which is a perfect spot to battle Salmon as they make their way up the Inside Passage to the freshwater spawning grounds. 

The charter outfits you with rod, reel, gear, and rain gear. Expect a professional but relaxed excursion that gives you access to King Salmon, Silver Salmon, Chum Salmon, Pink Salmon, and potentially, Sockeye Salmon. The tour runs from June through September and you may also have access to Steelhead. In addition, you can target Bottom Fish including big Ling Cod. 

The charter picks you up and drops you back at your dock, and they work with cruise ship passengers. 

Overall, expect an active fishing trip with a side-tour that is full of education. The tour is professional and casual, and they have their own outfitting unit so you only need to bring yourself to enjoy a wonderful Alaskan Fishing Adventure.

  • we enjoyed our guide and even though we didn't catch anything, the tour of the hatchery was very interesting and educational and we got to fish with seals waiting for a catch of their own.

  • We found out about Paul during a whale watch excursion from one of the mates on the boat. When we got back to shore, my friend and I called Chum Fun to see if we could get in on a trip that day...
